Tough Day in Phoenix Yesterday

As many of you may know about the two news helicopters crashing into each other yesterday you may not know that within about 8 hours of that incident Phoenix police lost one of their officers, check out the link.

April and I spent the week in Cabo, Mexico area last week. The local news stations picked up the story after we saw it on a multi cast out of Denver. Very sad . We had heard that the pilot and camera men from both aircraft had died. We did not hear about the LEO. Was the officer hit by the debris or falling aircraft?

No one killed by the two choppers hitting except for those on the two choppers died. The officer died in another incident later that night responding to a forgery call. Somehow the "Adam Henry" got the jump on him.

It was a sad day here in Phoenix indeed and particularly close to home for me, as I work right next door to the park where the copters crashed.

Regards & Ride Safe!
